J _ y \j y was largely spent buying bottled water and counting down the days

never before so many HHHhHHHHHI frantically aware and yet 

completely drunk souls as that 24 hour New Year's

survived. This school m^^A IL year marked many changes

Living the Good Life. . . 

Even though most 
people come to 
Southwestern for aca- 
demic reasons, one of 
the most important 
aspects of life re- 
volves around where 
they live. 

Required to live on 
campus, all first-year 
students begin their 
residential life experi- 
ences in one of four 
first-year halls: 
Brown-Cody, Kurth, 
Herman-Brown, and 
Ruter. The people 
they meet on the halls 
often become their 
first and closest 
friends at college. 

Unlike many other 
universities, 83% of 
Southwestern stu- 
dents chose to live on 

As sophomores 
and juniors, most stu- 
dents lived in 
Moody-Shearn or 
Mabee Halls, while 
others move into 
their fraternity 
houses or to an off 
campus location. 

Many students look 
forward to the oppor-

to celebrate December 

tunity to live in the 
Lord Center Apart- 
ments as seniors 
which offer the ben- 
efits of an apartment 
while still being able 
to live on campus. 

Residential Advi- 
sors (RAs) and 
Sophomore Advisors 
(SAs) make up the 
residential-life staff 
whose job it is to en- 
force school policy on 
the hall, resolve con- 
flicts between resi- 
dents, and help them 
in any way they can. 
The res life staff 
also sponsors differ- 
ent programs 
throughout the year 
including tie-dying 
on the east side of 
campus to promote 
unity among resi- 

1999-2000 proved to 
be another exciting 
year for the kids in 
the halls.

bright and shiny staff of employees. The Milkbar is a 
great place to study (if you can concen- 
trate) or to sit back and enjoy some good 
conversation with friends. Once a week 
or so, student musicians donate their 
time and provide SU with live musical 
entertainment in the Milkbar.

Parties are fun! - words from Southwestern Phi Delt 
Kevin Lawson. Contrary to Kevin's opinion though, most 
members not of the immediate SU community would view our 
parties as less than satisfactory. However, the fraternities 
continually succeed in providing ample entertainment for their 
attendees. This past year, in addition to their traditional fiestas, 
the guys expanded their previous limitations of the Southwestern 

In the fall, the Pikes ventured into Austin for Swamp. 
How appropriate those party goers from the "smart school" ar- 
rive at the Buffalo Club in yellow school buses? KA's and their 
guests rode in charter style to Volente Beach for the Return of 
Crazy Horse party enjoying water slides and sand volleyball 
courts along with the free ride. The Phi Delts started a new 
tradition with Phi Island, complete with wading pool and palm 
trees in the back yard. 

In the spring, students looked forward to the Kappa 
Sig Valloween party, celebrating Halloween and Valentine's Day 
together. Students' creativity with their attire comes alive! The 
Phi's brought out the tent and homemade dance floor for Raw- 
hide with musical guests such as Cory Morrow and Owen 
Temple. With the spring came new pledges and additional par- 
ties in their honor. 

Does Coach Mallon know where you are right now? 

Pirates set sail at Volente Beach. 


You don't always have to wait until the 
weekend to get away from classes. Study breaks at 
any of the houses are a regular occurrence on 
Wednesday nights throughout the fall and spring 

Sororities are not the only hosts of formal 
parties. If you're lucky, the guys will get cleaned up 
for you at their date parties. Each of the fraternities 
also treat their ladies to weekend getaways. If you 
like the beach, the Phi's will take you to Port Aransas; 
you also might find yourself in South Padre Island 
for Pike Dreamgirl. Last year the Sigs escorted their 
dates to the River Walk in San Antonio, and every 
year, the KA's charter their dates to New Orleans 
for Old South. 

And don't forget about 0A0 TOGA! ...or 
rather, can anyone remember TOGA?!

they're something to get fired up about!

Search no longer! Homecoming Sing isn't the only 
time S.U. students get a chance to bask in the 
musical spotlight. Music students of the FAB create 
Carnegie Hall-worthy performances for the 
Southwestern community on almost a weekly basis. 
From Chorale concerts featuring French music (fall 
'99) to Wind Ensemble performances showcasing 
student compositions (spring '00), musical "Fabbies" 
always offer up an original and fascinating show. 
Don't forget the elaborate costumes of Opera 
Theatre— this year's show featured scenes from 
Mozart's Cosi fan Tutte and Gilbert and Sullivan's 
The Mikado. Also, a massive Chorale and Orchestra 
combination work is produced annually each spring;

Feiffer's People, the last student-directed play of the 
semester, was written by Jules Feiffer. The director of the 
show was Jonathan Knipscher. Cast members were: Chris 
Myers, Michael Pappas, Sara Springfield, Meg Allen, 
Yesenia Garcia, Brandon Hobratschk, Aaron Johnson, Alissa 
Lucas, Kelly Mansfield, and Rachel Obranovich. Ashley 
Schmiedekamp was the stage manager. The set design was 
done by Hannah Jarrell, while Jill Winfree designed the 
costumes. Sound design and lighting design were done by 
Meg Sloan and J. P. Prentiss, respectively.

The Vagina Monologues were written by Eve Ensler 
after she conducted hundreds of interviews with 
many different women. The show's tour initiated 
V-day, which is a day in which to speak out against 
violence towards women. Here at Southwestern, as 
well as a number of colleges and universities around 
the country, the Monologues were performed on and 
around Valentine's Day. The Jones Rehearsal Hall, 
where the monologues were performed, was filled 
at every production, as many students and members 
of the faculty and staff came to support the goals of 
the Monologues and V-day. The cast and crew 
worked extremely hard to make an excellent 
production, as well as to make the community aware 
of the meaning behind the Monologues.

Viva La Vulva is a group of dedicated and creative 
students which changes from year to year. Each year 
(sometimes each semester), these students gets 
together to write, direct, produce, and act in a series 
of vignettes open to the campus community. These 
scenes focus on a number of topics, depending on [ 
the interests and experiences of the group producing 
them. Often, they deal with subjects which are 
controversial or are meant to raise awareness of I 
injustices such as racism, sexism, and classism. This 
year's cast consisted of Laura Wilson, Kaaren 
Nelson-Munson, Becky Steelman, Gabby Aguilar, 
and Sonya Mooney. The members of the cast also 
wrote the material and performed many set-up 
duties before and during the show. Dawn Korthals 
also lent her services, providing a soundtrack for [ 
the show.

1 he newest addition to campus was finally

common gathering place to shoot pool, watch 
movies, and eat greasy food with friends. The Red 
& Charlene McCombs Center was built in place of 
the old Student Union Building, which was 
demolished in 1996. The generous donation of more 
than 11 million dollars, provided by the McCombs 
family, enabled Southwestern to give its students a 
place the administration could call their own.

Southwestern hosts its own job 
fair every fall for those eligible for work 
study. Located in the Wazel Courts, 
employers from all over campus have 
sign ups for new hires. Not all require 
an interview, but be prepared. It helps 
to know where you want to work so 
you can be their first choice, too! 

At minimum wage, working 10 
to 1 2 hours a week around your class 
schedule, students are able to bring in 
a fair amount of extra spending cash. 
The work study program actually 
employs approximately 36% of 
students. But for some, working and 
studying on campus is just too much 
to handle. 

Many students commute to 
Austin and Round Rock and even just 
outside the Southwestern bubble in 
Georgetown. Local restaurants such 
as Chili's and Geaux Fish give students 
a little more spending money in addition 
to Bank of America and Wildfire. El 
Arroyo will always be there for those 
willing to travel a little further. And 
for some, Austin is just around the 
corner. Senior Debi Guerra says, "half 
an hour just doesn't seem like a half 
an hour anymore," working at Austin 
Heart Cardiologist Group. Other 
students who work at the Austin malls 
agree the drive isn't too bad. 

Being able to handle a job and 
school simultaneously takes a lot of time 
and commitment. Whether it's your 
first job or your fifth, the experience 
gained not only benefits you, but your 
resume will get a little better as well.

It only takes a few dollars to entertain Southwestern students, while simultaneously 
:ontributing to a good cause. That's right, organizations on campus creatively lure students into 
donating their hard- earned money to help others. 

Activities hosted by SU student organizations may have you testing your tastebuds, 
Darticipating in some friendly competition, or have you running away screaming! The Tri Delts will 
weeten your teeth with Delta Desserts, benefiting Children's Cancer Charities. Or the Zetas will 
ampty your pockets collecting pennies for the Penny Parade, benefiting the Susan B. Komen 
Cancer Foundation. ADPi's hosted their first "3 on 3" Basketball Tournament this Spring benefiting 
the Ronald McDonald House, and Alpha Xi Delta collects toys for Choose Children. 

The men know how to help out, too! In fact, the Phi Delts generously donated themselves 
: or auction to the highest bidder, helping the Battered Women's Shelter of Round Rock. And the 
United Cerebral Palsy Foundation receives much help from the Pikes with their Haunted House, 
Chili Cookoff and car bashing extravaganza! 

A great thanks to these and other organizations on campus for taking their time to organize 
such events. Thanks to all those who participate, too.

Mall Ball is arguably Southwestern's most 
popular springtime tradition. It is a time 
of relaxation before the stresses of finals, 
when students, faculty, staff, and their 
families can hang out on the lovely mall, 
enjoy the sunshine, play fun games, eat 
cotton candy and snow cones, and groove 
to their favorite songs, sung by their 
favorite people. This year's Mall Ball 
featured all of the usual favorites as far as 
entertainment, with the addition of slip- 
n-slide for the kiddies (and others not 
afraid to get dirty). Mall Ball is a picture- 
perfect glimpse of Southwestern at its 
best— everyone gathered together, 
enjoying the outdoors and each other.

integral part of the Mall Ball tradition.

For the first year of a three-year experiment, 
Southwestern instituted a new introductory course 
system for first-years called First- Year Seminar, which 
effectively shelved the controversial Colloquium 
system. First- Year Seminar (FYS) is modeled after a 
program at Alma College (no, they haven't heard of 
us, either) and lasted for seven weeks, beginning 
during Orientation and ending in early October. Since 
the courses didn't last the entire semester, they were 
only worth two credit hours. 

The big difference between FYS and 
Colloqium was that FYS allowed professors to teach 
subjects that they were both experts on and were 
enthusiastic about teaching. First-year students were 
able to choose from 24 different courses, from 
"Psychobiography" to "Women in Country Music". 

The response to First-Year Seminar 

Dr. Stephanie Fabritius co-taught "Environments of 
Central Texas". 

Dr. Eric Selbin chats with FYS students 
Justin Landry '03 and Cheryl Lewis '03 

has been extremely positive. According tc 
Dr. Eric Selbin, the participating faculty 
were happy "teaching about things the} 
know and care about" and might no 
usually be able to teach. First-yea:i 
students were slightly overwhelmed during 
Orientation week when FYS classes were 
almost three hours everyday, but gradually 
they warmed up to the concept. Hillan 
Harris '03 thought that FYS was a gooc 
head-start on normal college courses, anc 
that it enabled first-years to "see what ; 
college exam was really like." Of course] 
just about everyone was glad to have FY' 
completed by the time midterms rolled 

Dr. Sonia Riquelme teaches Spanish- American culture. 

A Sampling of First- Year Seminar Courses: 

"Meteorology" (Dr. Hilgeman) 

"Myth, Modernity and 'Star Trek'" (Dr. Gottschalk 

"American Couples" (Dr. Gaines and Dr. E. Kain 

"Visual Form" (Dr. Veerkamp) 

"Being Human" (Dr. Childers) 

"Introduction to Psychobiography" (Dr. Hooker 

...and 18 more! 


Career Services 

Get Workin'! 

Despite the fact that the McCook-Crain 
building is located on the outskirts of campus, 
Career Services has outstandingly reached high 
amounts of traffic with their informative programs, 
job lines, and emails. 

Students should be aware that Career 
Services has a vast amount of resources to utilize 
during their search for a major, an internship, or a 
career. They offer individual counseling, career 
inventories, and special events including: Practice 
Professional Interview Day, Etiquette Dinner, 
Graduate School Faculty Panel, Student Success 
Showcase, Polish Your Image for Professional 
Power, Real World 1 01 , and Career Connections. 

In addition to these events, the Career 
Services web site, 
careers, also offers a wide range of internet 
sources. Students can register with Career 
Services to access Career Connections as a way 
to prepare sharp resumes. Employers can search 
the database for students' resumes while students 
can search through web internships/job listings 
or links to other helpful sources. 

On-campus recruiting is also organized to 

make it easier for both recruiters and students. 
Recruiters from the past include Dell, KPMG, 
Hewitt, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, SBC, Andersen 
Consulting, and many more. 

Their Resource Center also proves to be a 
useful source for job searches because of its lists 
of current job and internship opportunities and its 
shelves of books to thumb through according to 
particular areas of interest. If students want to meet 
with the counselors, then they need to make an 
appointment. Otherwise, students are encouraged 
to stop by and move one step closer to choosing 
the right career path.

How many times have you told yourself 
that you're going to STOP procrastinating? Well, 
one way to alleviate the situation is to attend 
tutoring! YES! Tutoring! Believe it or not, there 
are students who amazingly understand subjects 
that you aren't even capable of comprehending! 
Subjects include Spanish, Biology, Chemistry, 
Accounting, French, Math, History, Political 
Science, Psychology, and Sociology. 
Academic Services is also another source for 
help when you really feel like pulling your hair 
out! They can provide you with tutoring times and 
locations. They also offer tests to help analyze 
learning styles and and what best suits each 
students' needs. In addition, they hold workshops 

L-R: Susan Johns, Teresa Williams, Louisa Landry 
Laura Marquez 

demonstrating test taking skills, note-taking skills, 
organizational skills, and reading skills. 
Information is also available about ADD/ADHD, 
learning disabilities, and most importantly- 

Going to tutoring can help you keep up 
with homework assignments if you're having 
difficulties, or even help you get ahead — which 
is always a plus when the semester is winding 
down. Since you're paying out the nose to be a 
student at S.U., you might as well take advantage 
of all its resources to get your money's worth! 

"Not only do tutors feel great about helping 
someone succeed in class, but they gain valuable 
experience for the future. In the workplace, one 
will have to explain or teach something to a fellow 
worker or a client. He or she must know how to 
convey the information so that the worker or client 
will understand. This is exactly what tutoring 
does," senior Clint Rain explains. 


President Dr. Roy B. Shilling Retires 

On May 31 , 2000, Southwestern bid a fond 
farewell to arguably one of its most successful 
presidents, Dr. Roy B. Shilling, Jr. After 1 9 years 
at the helm, Dr. Shilling has retired from a lifetime 
of higher education administration and will instead 
focus on leisure time and consulting. 

Roy B. Shilling began his career in the circles 
of higher education by obtaining a Bachelor of 
Arts at McMurry College, then receiving a Bachelor 
of Divinity at Southern Methodist University. 
Shilling then earned a doctorate in higher 
education from Indiana University. 

Upon completing his education, Dr. Shilling 
worked at a variety of institutions of higher 
education including Tennessee Wesleyan College 
and Ball State University. During the 1968-69 
academic year, Dr. Shilling served as vice 
president at Southwestern. After that, he 
journeyed to Arkansas to assume the role of 
president at Hendrix College, a position he would 
hold until moving to Southwestern in 1 981 . 

During Dr. Shilling's tenure at Southwestern, 


the endowment has increased with 
virus-like speed from a piddly $36 
million to the current figure of 
$337 million. 23 of the 38 
buildings on campus have either 
been built or renovated since he 
became president. Southwestern 
joined the Associated Colleges of 
the South, increased its 
graduation rate from 50% to 
70%, increased the number of 
annual applications from about 
400 to over 1 500, and reduced 
the student to faculty ratio to 
11:1. To ice the cake, the 
college's ranking increased to be 
placed among the top 80% 
national liberal arts colleges, 
according to U.S. News & World 
Report . We all wish Roy B. the 
best of luck in his future

How can Southwestern improve its recruitment of minority students and, 
once they are enrolled, provide an inclusive environment and a positive 
college experience? Through the American Sociological Association's 
Minority Opportunities through School Transformation (MOST) program, 
Seniors Pragati Desai, Steven Woo Kim, Jessica Urbina and Rachel Williams 
conducted a survey of Southwestern's minority alumni to determine the 
answers to these questions. The students worked for six weeks under the 
supervision of Dr. Ed Kain, professor of sociology and anthropology.

Through the Biology Summer Research 
Program, junior Jocelyn Fournet and 
senior Sarah Hoffman did research on the local wildflower "Pride of Texas", 
phloxdrummondii (Pd). By studying different flower populations, the two 
were intending to find out the causes of the differentiation in the number 
of petals on each flower (either 4, 5 or 6 with 5 being the norm). Were the 
variations the result of genetics, environment or a combination of the two? 
Fournet surveyed the natural populations of Pride of Texas around 
Georgetown to examine environmental affects while Hoffman did a 

controlled study in a greenhouse 
at the University of Texas. Over 
the course of ten weeks, the two 
found that differences in the 
number of petals could be 
attributed both to genetics and 
stressful environments. Fournet 
and Hoffman worked under the 
supervision of Dr. Damon Waitt, 
professor of Biology.

classrooms in the Fondren-Jones 
Science Building. 

Also working through the Southwestern Biology Summer 
Research program was J. Creedon-McVean. Under the tutelage of 
Dr. Damon Waitt, professor of Biology, Creedon-McVean labored 
on a project concerning the common tree disease known as oakwilt. 
Ordinarily, a test to diagnose a case of oakwilt takes 3-4 weeks. 
Creedon-McVean worked on developing a DNA "fingerprint" test 
to diagnose the disease more quickly. The test he developed does 
work, but as always, more research is needed.

1999 Summer Research Programs 

Senior Cody Cox worked with Dr. Traci Giuliano, professor of 
psychology, on an article concerning self-handicapping. The 
project, which was begun in Giuliano's Research Methods in 
Psychology class during the previous semester, dealt with this 
impression management technique in which people seek a way 
to control what others think of them. An example of self- 
handicapping is feigning sickness during an exam and later 
olaming your poor grade on said illness. Cox labored for a 
month, with the help and editing skills of Dr. Giuliano, to 
:omplete an article that is to be published in the October 2000 
Lssue of the Journal of Social Behavior and Personality, a 
nationwide publication.

Sophomore Wendy Hayter assisted Dr. Emily Niemeyer, 
professor of Biology, with some personal research over the course of 
eight weeks during the summer of 1999. Hayter helped monitor the 
intermolecular environment of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) 
polymers by doping them with a fluorescent probe known as 
PRODAN. She also ran various tests testing the effects of such variables 
as temperature, solvent polarity, time and solution. The results of their 
work were presented in poster format at the Southwest Conference of 
the American Chemical Society in El Paso in October. Hayter will be 
continuing her research during the summer of 2000 and hopefully will 
be presenting the further findings at a national conference.

Not to be outdone, the trio of junior Lindsay Cowart, sophomore Angela Roles and graduating 
enior Whitney Williams worked on "Distributed Computing." Over the course of eight weeks they worked 
pecifically on a process known as MPI which uses message- 
massing to allow multiple computers to work on the same task. 
Zowart, Roles and Williams wrote several programs (such as 
actoring large numbers, sorting, etc.) and compared parallel 
:omputing with similar programs running on just one machine, 
[he advantage to distributed computing is that run times are 
;reatly decreased since tasks can easily be divided and processed 
ny multiple computers. To do their research, the students used 
he new Silicon Graphics machine in the Math /Computer Science 
ounge in Mood-Bridwell as well as other CS machines like 
Jambam, Silo and Whitney's machine in his apartment. Cowart, 
ioles and Williams worked under the guidance of Dr. Walt Potter.

Southwestern University has hoped to offer its 

students a writing center for 14 years. In the fall of 1999, 

the University Writing Center opened under the direction 

of Dr. Elisabeth Piedmont-Marton. 

A class called The Teaching of Writing prepared a 

group of about 1 5 students to become writing consultants. 

The class, composed of juniors, seniors, and one 

sophomore, focused on a combination of writing center 

theory and practical training. Dr. Greg Barnhisel is 

teaching the class this semester in order to accommodate 

for current consultants who are graduating in May. 

Southwestern students from all disciplines and 

grade levels utilized the writing center during its opening 

semester. Students have found that writing center 

consultants are impartial and helpful readers in any and 

all stages of the writing process, from prompt to finished product. Quinn Renier, a sophomore, said, 

"Dalila helped me organize and summarize my thoughts. It was very helpful." Senior Leigh Dunson 

agreed. In fact, consultants also have worked with graduate school and job applications. The writing 

center is also developing a resource library for interdisciplinary writing and reference materials. 

Students and faculty decided to name the writing center after Debby Ellis following her death in 

October of 1999. Dr. Ellis had been a 
member of the English Department faculty 
since 1987, and specialized in medieval 
literature. Many students and faculty 
members who had been inspired by Dr. 
Ellis' teaching were involved with the Ellis 
Writing center. In March, several 
consultants accompanied Dr. Piedmont- 
Marton and Dr. Barnhisel to Fort Worth 
for the South Central Writing Center 
Association Conference. The students 
presented a panel discussion entitled, 
"Out of the Mouths of Babes: What 
Undergraduates Have Learned About 
Starting a Writing Center." The official 
dedication ceremony and grand opening 
was held on April 29, 2000.

So what is ACS, you ask? ACS is an 
acronym for the Associated Colleges of the 
South, a group of 1 5 small liberal arts campuses. 
ACS received a $1.25 million grant from the 
Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to establish a 
technology center and provide programs for 
faculty and staff development with the use of 
technology" states Suzanne Bonefas, the director 
fDf technical programs for the Associated Colleges 
f the South. The ACS is located on the second 
loor of the A. Frank Smith, Jr. Library Center. 

Many small liberal arts colleges stress the 
need for technological opportunities for students 
and faculty that are usually only available at large 
universities. With the help of Dell Computer 
Corporation's generous discount, Southwestern 

The ACS is located on the second floor of the 
library and has both Macs and PCs. 

was able to accept the honor of creating the 
center. Southwestern was chosen for the center 
because of its excellent facilities and long record 
of leadership and innovation in the use of 
instructional technology, Bonefas said. 

In conjunction with ACS Technology 
Center, Information Technology Services (ITS) 
provides a valuable learning environment for the 
students at Southwestern. ITS has organized

three computer labs featuring G3 Power Macs, 
Dell Pentium II workstations, and quality high 
speed laser printers. Fortunately, these skilled 
individuals know enough to provide tech support 
and services for administration, instructional, and 
residential technology needs.

Brown Symposium XXII 

76e Itttttic of OCwc&v "TtUtetUea 

On February 3 and 4, the Southwestern 
campus once again played host to the 22nd 
Annual Brown Symposium, being developed for 
the fifth time by F. Ellsworth Peterson, professor 
of music and holder of the Margaret Root Brown 
Chair. Dr. Peterson spearheaded this year's 
symposium, which described the work of Olivier 
Messaien, a very eclectic 
20th century composer. 

Messaien (1908- 
1992) served as organist of 
La Trinite in Paris in 1936. 
During the early years of 
World War II, he was a 
medical orderly in the 
military until being captured 
by the Germans in 1940, 
after which he spent several 
years in a concentration 
camp. After the war, 
Messaien became a 
professor at Ecole Normique 
de Musique and in 1967, 
was elected professor of 
composition in the Paris Conservatory. 

He was known to Parisians as "the atomic 
bomb of contemporary music", and Messaien's 
musical style can only be described as 
completely original. 

! l 

Messaien scholar Robert Sherlavv 
Johnson was quick to point out that the mu- 
sic, despite the sound, is not "a conglomer- 
ate of uninegrated bits and pieces". 
Messaien had a medical condition 
known as synaesthesia, whereby he 
associated colors with music. Although 

fairly common in 
children, the talent 
usually goes away 
by the time the 
person reaches 
adulthood. Not so 
for Messaien, who 
composed musical 
works using a 
"music of colors' 
Rather than seeing 
large splotches of 
color upon hearing 
music, Messaien 
described his 

synaesthesia a si 
seeing flickering; 
colors in response to music. In turn, some: 
of his compositions were based more on the 
sounds attributed to particular colors. For 
instance, the music in Messaien's Sunset of 
the Warbler corresponded to a range of 
colors from red to orange to violet. 





Dr. Ellsworth Peterson organized this year's 

The Catholic faith was also incorporated in 

Messaien's music, which he wanted to 

sometimes present as 

"faith to atheists". He 

used headings and 

quotations from the 

Bible to name sections 

of his musical pieces. 

Messaien even created 

a musical alphabet of 

tones for spelling out 

texts from the Summa 

Theologica of Saint 

Thomas Aquinas. 

Messaien was 
also a great believer in 
the musical properties of birdsong and 
attempted to imitate various songs in many of 
his compositions. His goal was to make his 
music indistinguishable from that of real birds, 
or "painting a portrait of the bird", as he called 
it. Unfortunately, Messaien was never able to 
exactly replicate the tones due to the limitations of 
his instruments, but the majority of his birdsongs 
played during the 
symposium were 
easily identifiable 
as such. Not one 
to be too flashy, 
Messaien focused 
on familiar 
European birdcalls 
such as those of the 
blackbirds (the 
European variety) 
and robins. 

The most 
interesting of 
compositions, at 

least as far as history is concerned, is his 
"Quartet for the End of Time." This 
composition was written 
while Messaien was a 
captive in a German 
prisoner-of-war camp in 
Silesia. The only 

instruments available were 
a violin, a clarinet, a cello 
and a piano, none of which 
were in good enough shape 
for a traditional concert. 
Messaien composed his 
"Quartet" for these four 
instruments and, with the 
help of three others, 
performed for over 5,000 of their fellow 

Dr. Peterson's stated goal was "to help 
people who are somewhat afraid of 20th 
century music realize that it is not all that 
difficult to get into if one makes a little effort." 
The intriguing music of Olivier Messaien, 
which is very distinctive, was a great way 

to start.

Southwestern students study abroad 
in increasingly high numbers. At last count, 
39% of SU grads had participated in an 
international experience of a summer, 
semester, or year. As study abroad 
becomes more popular at Southwestern, so 
do the types of experiences and 
destinations. Students participate in field 
studies, internships, independent research 
and classroom learning. The entire globe 
has been covered by SU students. As is the 
case with U.S. students in general, Europe 
remains the most common destination. 
However, increasing numbers of students 
study in Mexico and South America, as well 
as Asia and Africa. 

Many students polish their foreign 
language skills while studying abroad, but 
you don't necessarily need to use a foreign 
language in order to have a meaningful 
experience. There are many offerings in 
English-speaking countries. Additionally, 
many programs and institutions offer course 


work in English where the host-country 
language is uncommon (for example, Finlanc 
or Hungary). Don't let fear of a foreign 
language keep you from learning and living 
in another culture! 

More and more, study abroad 
programs offer students the chance to really 
"get into the culture." If you study in another 
country, you can expect not only to take 
classes, but to have opportunities to dc 
"hands on" work in the culture. Through] 
internships and other experiential offerings 
study abroad programs offer students a- 
variety of avenues to take advantage of in 
their host country. 

If you are thinking of studying 
abroad, please stop by the Office of 
International Programs. The resource room 
is in Mood 304, and is your first stop for 
information. The secretary is in Mood 305, 
and Sue Mennicke (the director of 
International Programs) is in Mood 309. 
You can reach us at extension 1857. We 
hope to see you soon!

Alma Thomas got a little bigger this year. 

A s always, the 99-00 school year brought more construction to Southwestern 's ever-changing 

campus with new edifices popping up all over the place. 

The Alma Thomas Fine Arts Center (FAB) received a new addition that is described as 

providing "the finest academic spaces for the study of music and the visual arts." The addition- 

- which cost a cool $3.7 million-- includes state-of- 
the-art acoustically-treated teaching studios for 

music (equipped with Steinway pianos), studios for 

drawing and painting with big windows for light, and 

a secured gallery for exhibition space. The school 

of fine arts has been re-christened the Sarofim School 

of Fine Arts after Houston investment advisor Fayez 

Sarofim, who donated the money for this recent 

addition (plus another $4 million for future 


The Kyle E. White Religious Activities Center 

(RAC) was moved from its previous position next to The rac rolls down southwestern Blvd. 

the Old Commons (since demolished). Using hydraulic lifts, the RAC was transported in two 

sections to its current resting place next to Career Services. It was a third cheaper to move the 

RAC, built in 1956, then to tear it down and build another one. 

Construction was also completed on the Fondren-Jones Science Hall (FJS) by adding the 

new Gordon C. Evans Sr. Wing which cost about $4.3 million. The new building includes two 

multimedia classrooms, additional research laboratories for biology, chemistry, and physics, 

new faculty offices and even a nuclear magnetic resonance 
spectrophotometer. (If you want to know what that is, contact 
Dr. Villa.) Current on-campus construction projects include 
the new McCombs Residential Center, scheduled to be 
completed by Fall 2000 ( in the spot of the old Ruter parking 
lot) and

against us including: a small team, limited experience, and a multitude of injuries, it is a wonder that 
|twe nine players felt determined enough to overcome all the adversity, but we did. In fact, our third 
iplace finish in the conference (we were fourth last year) surprised many, but we had the confidence 
to endure any hardship with each other's support. Beginning the season with a new coaching staff 
is always an adventure. One advantage is the ability to start completely refreshed under a new 
style or technique of coaching. Head coach Cathy Brett and assistant coach Courtney Kanegae 
provided a new insight into the world of collegiate volleyball. Through their positive perspective and 
unending support, we were better able to push strongly and confidently through the end of the 
season. I can honestly look back at this season and say that it was one of the best times of my life. 
I thank every teammate and coach for the special memories (flags, puzzle, pumpkins, van trouble!) 
because those thoughts will last a lifetime, and I wish the team luck next season. One last word of 
wisdom... Whoowaaa!" 

-Kirsten Bush 
Special to the Yearbook 


SU soccer has 
come a long way in the past 
few years. One reason is 
the outstanding recruiting 
class this year. Strong 
players such as Sal Lopez, 
Jason Knecht, Marc 
Mottinger, Clay Dixon, and 
John-Patrick Morris played 
a huge role in improving the 
soccer team's performance. 
Even though new players 
strengthened the team, the 
upplerclassmen held it 
together. Seniors such as 
Billy Hodge, Jeffrey Bendall, 
Charles Boehm, and Ben 
Wallace gave the 
opponents something to 
work for. Other players 
such as Greg Gannon, 
David Russo, Jimmy 
Stanton, Eric Young, and 
Michael Nasra completed 
the defense with skill. 
Individuality isn't the key to 
a winning season, though. 
Teamwork is a word that is 
commonly practiced on the 
soccer field. "A good soccer 
team isn't made up of skilled 
players, it's made up of 
team unity and that's what 
makes our team good," 
says senior Billy Hodge. 
Each person on the team 
knows how to work together 
and help each other out, 
and that's what makes them 
a winning team. 

The team gathers to show their enthusiasm before a game. 

Coach Gregory watches as the rest of the team anxiously 
awaits the outcome of the game.

Women's Soccer 

The women's soccer team started the 1 999 
season playing a very competitive schedule. Led 
by head coach Jack Flatau and assistant coach 
Malek Ben-Musa, the team began the pre-season 
playing tough Division II teams like Incarnate Word 
and highly ranked teams like Savannah College. 
These games prepared the Lady Bucs for later in 
the season SCAC games. Coach Flatau wanted to 
challenge his team and expose what needed 
improvement. The team ended their season with a 
Conference record of 6-3-0 and an overall record 
of 7-1 0-1. 

The team was lead with two junior captains, 
Shawna Hudson and Laura Starzynski . Hudson was 
choosen as 1st Team All Conference and 1st Team 
All Region, and sophmore Amanda DiBennedetto 
was choosen 2nd Team All Conference.

Being the first Men s 
Golf team of the 21st 
century at 

University, they have 
worked hard to make 
a name for 

themselves. The key 
to a good season is to 
place the team above 
individual players. 
"This team is so 
supportive of each 
other," said Head 
Coach Karolyn 

Criado. The Golf 
team knows that one 
must have a good 
attitude to be able to 

play the best they can. 
The Men's Golf team 
finished 10th of 18 
teams at the Emory 
Invitational held at the 
Royal Lakes Golf Club 
in Gainsville, GA. The 
men placed second at 
the SCAC 

Championships held at 
Stonebridge Golf 
course in Memphis, 
TN. Brian Gibbs and 
Trevor Pierce were 
named All SCAC First 
Team. William Key 
was also honored by 
being named All SCAC 
Second Team.

and 12th nationally at the conclusion of the 
fall season. New Head Coach Karolyn 
Criado is combined with a strong returning 
team led by two-time SCAC medalist Ashley 
Martin and fellow senior Allison Hooker. 
The team secured the SCAC Championship 
the past two years and earned 2nd place this

Swimming for a successful team takes hard 
work and dedication. When a team first 
forms, they can't just start off at the top. 
They have to work their way up to victory. 
The Swimming/Diving team has only been a 
part of Southwestern for two years, but they 
are already showing great improvement. Our 
athletes are quickly growing in strength and 
number. The Bucs faced some of the best 
competition in the state for their second 
season. Under the leadership of Coach 
Pukys, the team is building their enthusiasm 
to become one of the best. Having so many 
first year students on the team gives Coach 
Pukys an opportunity to build a strong 
foundation for the upcoming years of 
competition. The upperclassmen help to 
contribute experience and skill. Teamwork 
is the building block for a successful team. 
The Bucs have recognized this essential 
element and work well to show it. Everyone 
on the team was able to achieve one of his 
or her personal best times at the 1 999-2000 
SCAC meet. There were also 1 3 men's 
records broken at the meet. Overall, 30 out 
of 46 records were broken. Being one of 
the best conferences in the nation, it's very 
hard to be an individual finalist. Nothing is 
holding our SU Bucs back, though, as they 
clearly presented this season. 

Coach Pukys cheers his team 
on to victory.

Southwestern's 1999 cross country seson marked the debut of new head coach and 
five-time Olympian Francie Smith. Smith prepared the Bucs for a tough schedule, 
including matching up against Division I opponents, in preparation for the conference 
championships. The team had six returning men and women runners as well as several 
first-years. The men finished 7th at the SCAC Championships and the women ended in 
6th place. The men's team went on to place 14th at the Southeast Regional Championships. 

First-year Mary Mayes earned all conference and all region honors, and sophmore Eric Mosley 
earned all region honors. Mayes also qualified to compete in the NCAA Division III Cross Country 
Championships where she posted a school record and personal best time of 18: 15.2 for the 5K distance.

Lacrosse is a fun sport, but it's very 
physical. The players have to be able 
to endure large amounts of pain 
caused by the physical contact. To 
play well, the players have to look past 
the pain and make a team effort. The 
Men's Lacrosse team at Southwestern 
knows this and used it to their full 
advantage. Just last year, the team 
got accepted into the United States 
Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association 
as a member of the Lone Star Alliance. 
The team had a mix of young talent 
and experienced leadership this year. 
With ten new first-year players, Head 
Coach Bill Bowman was very 
enthusiastic about their new season. 
This was the first year that the team 
had over 20 players on the roster in 
five years. Each one of the players 
showed a huge amount of potential for 
the overall team. 

Players go head-to-head to start off the game. 

Ready for attack. 

Catching the ball isn't as 
easy as it looks. 


Men's Basketball 

This season was a fresh start for the SU Men's Basketball team. This year marked the first year 
for Head Coach Raleigh at Southwestern University. He had his work cut out for him. The team 
only had seven players with college basketball experience. Only four of the team members were 
above the sophomore class. This little factor didn't stop the team from playing a great season, 
though. Size was definitely a strength for the team. Every position on the court was filled with 
tall, strong athletes. The Pirates' overall speed on the court proved as an aid for their defense. 
Teamwork and skill brought the players to their position at the end of the season. They worked 
hard and earned every bit of recognition they received.

The Lady Bucs started out the 1999-2000 season with 
four senior captains and a strong combination of 
returning players and new talent. Head coach Ronda 
Seagraves and assistant coach Courtney Kanegae led 
the team through competition in a tough conference. 
The team had victories as well as close losses and 
finished the season with a SCAC record of 12-13.

Returning to the team this year were two 
strong sophomores. The Men's Tennis 
team also gained a number of impressive 
first-years. The men's team showed lots 
of hard work and determination to reach 
the point of success. In the Southern 
Collegiate Athletic Conference 
Championships at Rhodes College in 
Memphis, Tenn., the men's team finished 
fifth overall. The team's skill was rewarded 
even further, though. They were placed 
8th of 1 5 teams in the NCAA Division III 
Southern Region. The Men's Tennis team 
knows what it takes to make a great team 
with a successful season.

Baseball is a fun sport to play, but it 
also takes a lot of hard work. Coach 
Mallon knows how much dedication 
goes into each game. Under his 
coaching, the SU Pirates brought 
home a fourth victory from -the 
Southern Collegiate Athletic 
Conference Championship this year. 
This was no coincidence. The Pirates 
ended the season with a record of 32- 
9, 18-2 in the SCAC. Coach Mallon's 
winning percentage of .655 earned him 
the honor of being named the second 
all-time winning coach in NCAA 
Division III history. The team's hard 
work and effort was reflected this year 
by their excellent performance. The 
Southwestern University baseball team 
is currently ranked #8 in the nation and 
#1 in the West Region.

The Southwestern Student Congress was 
created in 97-98 by a group of students 
assessing what was seen as a viable concern: 
the lack of a student voice on campus. Current 
members stand behind the single purpose of 
working to provide a forum for student 
concerns and opinions as well as to increase 
communication between the student body 
and the rest of the university community. 
Students on the congress are represented 
by elected officials from all walks of life 
represented in our student body. Members 
are also expected to represent a student 
voice through participation in many other 
organizations tied to the Student Congress. 
Head offices of the Stu-co are popularly 
elected through campus speeches and 
campaigning that ends in a campus wide 
election. President Arianna Chavez said that 
Student Congress is an important part of the 
campus community because it provides 
students with a way to voice their concerns 
and begin a process that adapts the university

each year to the changing needs of our campus 
community. Student Congress works on the concerns 
of our campus by providing students, faculty and 
staff with equal representation and voice.

S.H.A.R.P., students helping the admissions recruitment program, represents a popular 
campus organizations that allows the students to have a part in the recruitment process 
of those considering Southwestern for higher education. This organization is sponsored 
by the Admissions Office and works to pair up prospective students that come to stay 
on campus overnights with SU students. Criteria for pairing partners often includes 
similar extra-curricular interests, similar educational focus or similar region of origin. 
When large groups of students come to visit our campus, S.H.A.R.P. helps organize 
their visits and keeps them entertained by sponsoring movies and mixers to help 
students get acquainted with their host and other prospective students. Without an 
organization that allowed actual SU students to interact with the possible incoming 
freshmen, the admissions process would not have the same effect on recruitment.

The Literary Magazine is a 
medium for students to express 
their ideas and be creative. 
Students from all courses of 
study, not just the more writing 
inclined, are encouraged to 
share their thoughts and ideas 
through the written word. The 
Magazine collects these words 
in all forms, be they poetry, 
monologues, short stories, 
essays, etc. As always, the SU 
community is happy to share its 
thoughts and the Literary 
Magazine is more than happy to 
print them. This year is a change 
from the single editor to a triune: 
Jennifer McAndrew, Breanna 
Rollings, and Emily Rosenblum. 


The Megaphone keeps SU 
students up to date and 
entertained with campus news, 
current events, student 
comics, music and movie 
reviews, and student opinions. 
With this weekly newspaper, 
students can express their 
ideas and have a means to 
display their abilities. The 
Megaphone staff works hard 
each week to get the publication 
out in time for its reception by 
the SU community. By far, we 
cannot appreciate the blood, 
sweat, and tears that go into 
this weekly publication. This 
year's editor, who has no social 
life at all, is Josephine Hodge.

semester of this year due to 
a noticed lack of 
appreciation for the German 
language and culture on our

appreciation in our 
community, and it will begin 
by hosting an end of the 
year banquet at the German 
restaurant in Walburg.

"Democratic politics in Texas in the year 
2000. ..hmm. Taking a cue from the State 
Party, the Southwestern Young Democrats 
lay low this year, saving valuable energy 
and resources for the knockdown, drag- 
out fight that 2002 will prove to be. Due 
to the extreme Republican nature of 
Williamson County, we Democrats decided 
to limit our activities to slashing the tires 
of cars with George Bush bumper stickers."

would have given us candidates."

College Republicans, while feeling 
a slight lag in activity this year, 
still managed to get some good 
things accomplished. Four 
members attended the Texas 
Young Republican Federation 
Conference in San Antonio. 
These four were Kelli Larson, 
Sylvia Mayer, Jarred Vaughn, and 
Brent Webster. Many of the 
College Republicans are members 
of the Williamson County chapter 
of the College Republicans. The 
coming school year, especially 
the Fall, will be very interesting 
as the group plans to be very 
involved in the George W. Bush 
Presidential Campaign.

are promised for tomorrow while we are for Him today. We are 
sign; we are wonder. We are sower; we are seed. We are harvest; 
we are hungry. We are question; we are creed." 

The ring of this song completes every chapter meeting of 
Sigma Phi Lambda, Southwestern's only Christian sorority. In 
the spring of 1998, twelve SU women were initiated into the 
sixth chapter of Phi Lamb. Their purpose is to create a 
sisterhood in which Christian women are able to grow in their 
faith and in their personal relationship with Christ. Through 
weekly devotionals, prayer groups and chapter meetings, as 
well as fellowship activities, social events, service projects and 
semesterly retreats, Phi Lamb encourages its sisters to be strong 
in their faith. 

Even as a new organization (nationally, less than 13 years 
old) Sigma Phi Lambda has certainly made an impact on its 30 
members, in addition to other Christian women on our campus.

The Gamma chapter of the Kappa Upsilon 
Chi fraternity represents the Christian male 
social association on campus. This 
organization is new to the SU campus and is 
working to improve awareness of the 
Christian faith among the campus 
commuunity. Currently the Kappa Chis have 
had two pledge classes, one in the fall with 
1 9 guys and another in the spring with 5 
additional pledges. Currently the guys of 
Kappa Upsilon Chi have participated in one 
community service activity at the Getsemani 
Project, helping to do minor building, repairs 
and general yard work for a budding local 
church. The Christian fraternity represents 
the first of such represented on our campus. 
However the brothers are not all about work 
and have perticipated in many social activities 
with other social organizations on campus 
such as their Semi-Formal held in the Fall at 
the Metropolitan club and joint salsa and 
merengue lessons with the Christian sorority, 
Sigma Phi Lambda. In the future the brothers 
hope to reinforce their motto "as iron 
sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another" 

from the bible verse Proverbs 27:17 that 
describes the relationship that brothers have 
in their commitment to accountability to 
model the ways and life of Christ.

dedicating time to the campus and local 
community, the Alpha Delta Pis hosted many 
social activities including a Fall and Spring 
themed party. In the Fall students could 
attend Pis in Disguise where everyone wears 
a costume and has a good time. In the 

Often relying on each 
other, the ADPi's find 
time to relax and unwind.

Community service is 
important to ADPi. Here, 
the ladies spent the day 
with Habitat for 
Humanity of Austin to 
clear brush and cactus. 

ADPi's strive to continue 
relationships with alumni who 
are still in the surrounding area. 
Alumna are often a great source 
of inspirations for incoming 
sorority members. 

During the Fall semester, 
ADPi members spent time 
painting backdrops in 
preparation for recruitment 
weekend. This also 
provided a little extra time 
for the sisters to bond. 

Spies or ADPis? Debi 
Guerra, Leslie Larkin, and 
Casey Griffin disguised 
themselves for the ADSpy 
Spring Party. Sororities as 
well as fraternities hosted 
many themed parties for the 
campus community. 

ADPi's played 'Singled Out' with the Pikes 
at one of their mixers. Wes Schmidt, as the 
announcer, tries to find the right match for 
Casey Griffin. Mixers were often a fun way 
to take a midweek break for students.

The Spring 2000 New Member Retreat! 

The sisters of Southwestern's Theta 
Lambda Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta meet 
at college, but they stay life-long 
friends. Their national symbols include 
the bear, their colors of double blue and 
gold, the pink rose, and their most 
precious golden quill. Theta Lambda's 
own symbol is the sun. Around campus 
the Alpha Xi Delta's can be seen doing 
toy drives for their national 
philanthropy: Choose Children. This 
year they also contributed Easter toys 
and candy to a local hospital's 
children's ward. At Southwestern, the 
Alpha Xi Delta's Goodwill Groove is 
becoming a tradition. Each year they 
invite the campus to dance and party. 
This year everyone grabbed their 
baddest 80's duds and danced to some 
80's classics. The Alpha Xi Delta's 
wrapped up their semester with their 
Rose and Quill Formal, the clothes at 
this party were more fancy, but the 
same great time was had by all. These 
ladies are really making a difference in 
the Southwestern community.

elta Delta Delta was established 

as a national sorority at Boston 

University in 1 888. The Theta Epsilon 

chapter of Tri Delta was installed at S.U. 

in 1911, this being the third stage of its 

growth. The original chapter evolved 

from an ambitious group of young 

women who, in 1 904, established 

Southwestern's first sorority, named 

Alpha Delta. Today's Southwestern Tri 

Deltas continue the tradition of 

leadership, service, and high academic 

and moral standards that began with 

their founders. 

Under the leadership of president 

Jennifer Knight, Tri Deltas enjoyed a among Greek women in academics; four Tri Delta 

stellar year. They maintained first place seniors were named to the prestigious Phi Beta 

Kappa honor society-- the only Greek women to 
be so honored. Tri Deltas also kept their first 
place title in Intramurals.

The Theta Epsilon 2000 new member class! 

Theta Epsilon prides itself on diversity 
as well as high achievement. Tri Delta women 
are leaders in every aspect of campus life, 
including theater productions, Student 
Foundation, SHARP, Chorale, Orchestra, the art 
department, numerous academic honor 
societies, APO, Alpha Chi, Sigma Phi Lambda, 
and more. Tri Delta's national philanthropy is 
Children's Cancer Charities, and Theta Epsilon 
hosted many events throughout the year to 
raise money for this cause. The annual fall 
event Delta Desserts featured a spread of 
homemade treats; for a donation to charity, 
guests were invited to sample everything. Tri 
Deltas and others also created Chrsitmas 
decorations and goodies during the holiday 
season for children's hospital wards. The spring 
philanthropy (an innovation of the 2000 pledge 
class) was the Delta King Pageant, featuring 
Southwestern's finest men. For a charitable 
donation, onlookers could watch the guys 
:ompete for the coveted title of "Delta King" 
n a mock beauty pageant. 

Tri Deltas at Southwestern also share the 
strongest of bonds in sisterhood. The chapter 
nas had many chances to enjoy these bonds 
throughout the year. In 1998's Homecoming 
Sing! competition, Tri Deltas took first place 
with Mary Poppins . This year, they followed it 
up with a liqhthearted take on Footloose . Open 
meetings once monthly 
provided Deltas with an 
opportunity to deepen their 
knowledge on certain subjects.

Kappa Alpha Order 

J\appa Alpha Order was founded at Washington College in Lexington, Virginia in December of 
1 865. The four founders sought to bind their friendship by a "mutual pledge of faith and loyalty". 

These same bonds of . . brotherhood hold true to the 

brothers of Xi Chapter today. Xi Chapter was founded 

at Southwestern University fo on November 28, 1 883 and is the 

oldest fraternal '-j® \ organization in continual 

existence west of the • Mississippi River. Its strong 

traditions and brotherhood ^^ssSLj^* make it a leader among chapters 

in the Order. Being an ^"^i^B^A Order, Kappa Alpha is different 

than other fraternities in sS^BfflKfi^^ that jt ' s ^ asec) on principals and 

traditions. The founders SSHB Bfef c 7> emulated their college president, 

Robert E. Lee, a great jM^^-^BR^*f^fe gentleman and scholar who was 

eminent in character. His 3*t*^j&m'V&$&W£ chivalry and gentility are historic 
and have become the ^ij^^P foundation of Kappa Alpha 

Order. However, in I 1 addition to its rich history, Xi 

Chapter prides itself on having a strong brotherhood and dedication to each other at all times.

David Birkelbach, Adam Krohn, Xavier Lopez and Travis 
Hunt gather for some time together at one of the Kappa 
Sigs many themed parties. Providing a theme for parties 
allows their guests to get into the party spirit, and 
encourages the creativity of all involved. 

_Lhe brothers of the lota chapter 
of the Kappa Sigma fraternity 
contribute a unique perspective of 
fraternities at Southwestern. 
Members of Kappa 
Sigma are known for 
their willingness to 
contribute to the 
community through 
activities like "Twenty- 
Four Hour Volleyball", 
a game held in the 
Spring to benefit the 
Rape Crisis Center in 
Georgetown. The 
charter for the lota 
chapter of Kappa 
Sigma was established 
at Southwestern in 
1 886 and is reflected by the many 
composites that line the walls of 
the house. More recently, the Sigs 
were brought into the spotlight this 
Spring after a year-long battle that 

charged former-president Chet 
Lofgren with responsibility for the 
effects of a police raid on the house 
in the Fall of 1 998. Although Chet's 
case was dismissed 
in Georgetown, it 
was taken to an 
appellate court in 
Austin. Students in 
support of the 
fraternity could be: 
seen wearing shirts 
with the slogan 
"Save Chet" boldly 
written across their 
chests. The 

brothers of Kappa 
Sigma are also 
known for their 
"Study Breaks." 
The Sigs open their house every 
Wednesday night to provide 
students with a midweek break 
from their studying.

the Kappa Sigmas and the Tri- 
Deltas. Often fraternities hold 
mixers to encourage intra- 
organizational socialization. 


Allison Young, Liz Gorin and Melissa Nicewarmer all 
show their Halloween spirit by dressing up for the annual 
Kappa Sigma event known as Valloween. The Sigs used 
this event to help the campus community celebrate a 
.combination of Valentine's Day and Halloween. 

Isaac Smith, Jamil Driscoll, Matt 
Lawrence and Martin Moeller pose for a

was easy to find many fraternity

events were often laid back and relaxing. 


Brothers In The Bond:

s*» *' : 

Current class of Phi Delta Theta members including Pledges for the fall 2000 season. 

The brothers of the chapter of Phi Delta Theta represent the 
changing face of the fraternity for the Millennium. The Phi Delts 
focus on unity, brotherhood and furthering the community both 
on and off campus. As a national organization, the Phi Delta Theta 
Fraternity is adopting a no alcohol policy by the year 2002. This 
bold step was accepted as a way to help dispel the "Drunken frat 
boy" stereotype. Members are encouraged to explore different 
ways of staying involved and in touch with campus life. In the 
spring, many members could be seen helping with a local float for 
the Georgetown Public Library to promote summer reading at the 
Red Poppy Festival held on the square. However, the Phis still 
host numerous events for the social entertainment of the students 
including an annual Toga Party held every fall that is reminiscent 

of its origin in the hit film "Animal 

House." In the Spring, the Phi 

Delta Theta alums were welcomed 

back to campus for the Raw Hide 

Party complete with a country 

band and dance floor under the 

stars. The Southwestern chapter 

of Phi Delta Theta was established 

on campus in 1886 and they are 

continuing a tradition of 

excellence today.

friends to return to SU for a night of fun.

Delts gather for a

represents a chance 
for fraternity 
members to visit 
with past members 
every fall. 

Sophomores Mark Martinez and Michael Nasra play around in a 
ar built by fellow Phi Ryan Dowdy for a Halloween Carnival 
held for the Georgetown community. Participants in this event 
were encouraged to throw a football at the boys in order to win a 
prize for the best throw.

Pi Kappa Alpha 

Pi Kappa Alpha is one of the four national 

fraternities that are represented here at 

Southwestern. The 

Alpha Omicron chapter 

was established at SU in 

1919. The Pikes are well 

known for the many 

social activities held on 

campus such as their 

annual Crawfish boil held 

every spring and Bell 

Bottom Bash in the fall. 

Often proceeds from 

such events as their 

chili cook -off go to 

support their national 

philanthropy. This year 

members of the PKA fraternity raised 

money to donate to their national 

philanthropy. However, the big event of 

the 99-00 school year is represented ii 
the final selection of the fraternity'. 
"Dream Girl." Thi:

Chris Lord, reflected on his year as 
member of PKA and said "It was fun.'

^ea/i/ SoMtmiie&tewi/, 

Amazingly, the 1999-2000 school year has already come to a close. 
Tlew friendships were made, new talents were discovered, and my staff 
and I finally finished this dang yearbook. After three years of not seeing a 
Southwestern yearbook come to print, I took it upon myself to start the 
tradition a^ain. Its more than a tradition, really— it's a valuable piece of 
history to share with your family, and it serves as an important record 
book for our generation. (Dany students who had failed to order their 
yearbook won't realize how special this kind of book actually is— until 
they find themselves describing in inadequate words exactly what S.IX. 
meant to them. 

Editing the Sou'wester was one of the most difficult and time- 
consuming projects I have ever attempted. I started planning for it in the 
summer of 1999, and didn't finish it until almost one full year later. Chank 
goodness I was so starry-eyed and naive when I began, or else I might 
have allowed the hundreds of obstacles to deter me from completing it. I 
was very fortunate to have the support of so many students, and especially 
to have enormous help from 24 students in particular; they were willing 
to sign on as staff members and sacrifice countless hours of their free time. 
(See page 118 for staff list.) 

One hundred years from now, Southwestern students will find this 
year's book on the shelves of the library and pore over the pages, laughing 
at our hairstyles. Chey might also beam with pride at the traditions that 
will still be around, and would gain a rich sense of what Southwestern 
meant to us. So sit back, read, laugh, and enjoy: this is your personal 
time capsule, ready-made and just for you. 

'Beth Carroll '01 
Sou'wester Editor-in-Chief 

Chat final walk awau from

the Memory of:

On behalf of the yearbook, I 
would tike, to thank the following 
people for their help via donations, 
-photographs, time, committment and/ 
or advice. We couldni have done it 
without youi First of ail I would like 
to thank Linda McFall (Reslift) for 
bearing the brant of the paperwork and 
staying positive throughout the school 
year. Thanks also to Pat Ramsey, 
because without him, our staff would 
not even have had a computer to type 


University Relations helped us 
more than I can describe, especially 
because of the hard work of Carrie 
Johnson, and the wonderful 
photographs of Taylor Jones. Joanie 
Arneson took care of all our financial 
matters with a smile, andtheS.U.P.D. 
and our campus operators were always 
helpful even at 4am. Thanks also to 
Eric Van Dananfor his donation of 
the book, Southwestern: A University's 

In addition to the 
administration, many students also 
went above and beyond our 
expectations. Those who were 
members of our staff in particular who 
really made this book possible should 
be recognized. Among them, Matt 
Beck eagerly volunteered to complete 

pages from any section and stayed 
posidvethroughoutitall. DenaBatrice 
impressed us also by completing an 
amazing amount of work in a very 
short time, never complaining, and 
doing agreatjob on every page. Joanne 
Chiang stayed into the summer months 
to pick up others' work and made time 
to notice the details. Beth Bonnette 
too worked diligently throughout May 
term to complete others' work, going 
on to improve almost every page she 
encountered. And finally from our 
staff, Sharon Hahn, assistent editor, 
picked up the slack from the get-go, 
tutoring staff members, keeping track 
of everyones purchases, and making 
the time to get things done. 

Other students who deserve 
mention are those who contributed 
time: LauraLumpkin, Monica Salazar, 
andBenTautges, photographs: Sarah 
Peterson, Erica Silva, and Meg Sloan, 
and articles: Rosie Bamberger. 

Finally, a big thanks goes to the 
local Georgetown businesses who 
helped provide prizes for our pre- 
registration raffle. Those donors 
included: Divine Desserts, Sweet 
Suite, Whataburger, Luby's, Fakies, 
Burger King, Monument Cafe, and our 
own S.U. Bookstore.
